ADHD and applying for PIP
hi god where do I start?? Ok I have Ben diagnosed with severe adult ADHD scoring 9/9 ICD-10-D-10 in both mental and physical areas.I have just spent weeks googling my rights as I have suffered debt drug abuse substance abuse facing homelessness you name it I have experienced it.I am also thankfully a great mum and Registered Carer to my wonderful daughter who is now an adult and now her needs are mild.I am feeling very frustrated that after finally feeling that I can’t take anymore of my daily issues I googled my symptoms and scored highly for adult ADHD.Then my doctor who has always known I have issues with abuse myself the list goes on sent me to a fourth therapist who I informed that I had done my own test then we did the proper testing and I have it in writing my score issues and more and I’m still undergoing therapy.But I’m really angry that all my previous 50 yrs of suffering all the classic things we suffer with could of been avoided so I have recently applied for PIP again doing lots of research to make sure it will be worth it and that I will be eligible and I am if I use the correct criteria but also I want to be compensated as well as again I’m facing another possible court case for arreas of rent am on a debt relief order and so much more.i have done a hell a lot of work of late but it is possible for all Iv said and it all fits into place especially being a pain to my family about money the list is endless so I have wrote to a solicitor and I know my pip will try and say not eligible but I have it all so I’m hoping I will finally get some recognition for my many dam years of suffering.So there’s some of my story please feel free to add thank you
